Young Producers provides talented young people with producing training.
Over the course of one year, the group is given an introduction to producing through workshops in scheduling, budgeting, marketing, project management, artist liaison, as well professional mentorship and access to resources.
Young Producers are then given a brief, a budget and are supported to create and produce their own event with the aim to showcase this at Battersea Arts Centre’s annual Homegrown Festival.
This is an exciting opportunity to develop your creativity, work with exciting people and bring innovative ideas to the table. In the past these have included DJ nights, live debates, poetry slams, club nights, live art and film installations.
We are interested in hearing from people with a wide range of interests. You do not need experience to apply. Past Young Producers have included beatboxers, art students, sixth-formers, fashion designers and hairdressers.
Our current 2019 cohort of Young Producers are working in collaboration with the Young Vic Theatre. They are: Aoife O’Doherty, Ben Monk, Bianca Rawlinson, Coral Knights, Davida Afriyie, Dennis Dogan, Flora MacKeddie, Halima Hassan, Intisar Yusuf, Jacob Roberts-Mensah, Kc Gardiner, Naying Ren, Oli Smith, Qansa Omar, Ruth Sparkes, Samuel Jones, Sandy Abdelrahman, Tashan Nicholas.
